There have been so many great projects from the Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors that featured Deb Tucker's Signature Collection "Twilight Chic" by Kathy Engle for Island Batik this week.  Today, we are finishing off the week with two more projects from my fellow Studio 180 Certified Instructor Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler and myself.

Urbanologie finished from Sew Sunshine


Urbanologie QAL was hosted by Sew Kind of Wonderful

I did the block sections at the time of the qal and managed a little change in the arrangement. It was a super fun quilt to make. But then how to quilt it? I felt it is such a whimsical quilt so thought I would go outside my comfort zone and have someone else quilt it. A friend in my lcq works for Mangelsons and they do quilting so she quilted it for me in a fun mash up of designs called 'texture'. 


I brought it home and squared it up ...

BOMs and QALs for 2019 from Blossom Heart Quilts

When it comes to thinking about your quilty plans and goals for 2019, one option to consider is signing up and committing to a block of the month (BOM) or a quilt along (QAL) or something similar to give you something to slowly on over the year. A small bit of progress each month will build up to something big at the end of the year! Not to mention the opportunities for making new friends, learning something new, or practicing an older skill that could do with some more work. In today’s blog post, I’ve rounded up a ...

Minnesota Winter Wonderland - November from Quilt Doodle Doodles...




I'm sure many of you that are quilting along with me have your strips all  sewn together on your quilt, isn't it cute! Now it's time to put on the borders, and borders are totally optional. You can do them as I have suggested or do your own. It's up to you! In the listing of supplies I recommend 1 yard for border one and 1 1/2 yards for border two. I've got the borders added to mine... You can do two borders, one border. I've also seen this quilt done with a ...

Layered Cake Custard Quilt Along from Lily Patch Quilts

Hello! It's been a while since I've been able to post on here. It's been busier than usual, but a good busy. Today I am sharing this beautiful quilt called Layered Cake Custard form the Fat Quarter Shop. This pattern is a part of Fat Quarter Shop's Shortcut Quilt series. This was super easy and quick to put together.


It is a nice twin size and only takes one layer cake and some extra yardage for the frame, backing and binding. I didn't complete mine because I wanted to make it into a bed size ...

Minnesota Winter Wonderland QAL - October from Quilt Doodle Doodles

It's the very last section to the quilt.  Well a winter themed quilt needs a string of lights. We have our lights up on our house all winter long. Every year I think it would be a good idea and string the lights outside before the snow falls. I really think the ideal time would be right before Thanksgiving but after Halloween. But my hubby always wants to wait until after Thanksgiving. We've been out in the snow hanging lights and they stay up until spring. Mainly because they are frozen in place or buried in snow until ...

#100Days100Blocks2018: Cityscape from Liz Makes Crafts

Cityscape is the 2nd of my #100Days100Blocks2018 quilt tops, using the Skyline layout. I've always had a thing for skylines, so naturally I was very attracted to this layout.

While I love black and white and gray and would have no problem making a quilt with just those colors, I absolutely love the pops of neon in this quilt. I had just enough for one "colored" floor for each building, so I placed it in the floor below the penthouse unit for each building.

I ended up using all but 2 of the blocks I sewed for this top ...

Beginnings Quilt Along Block 12 from The Intrepid Thread

Hi Everyone,

 Here is the first of the blocks for our big push to get finished with our quilt this month. I Was literally buried under fabric last month and unable to get even 5 minutes to get these tutorials done. I have had the blocks finished the video filmed since the middle of August.

Speaking of Video. I am not posting it with this block. This is a super easy block and I am pretty certain you can do this one without the video. I do have video for it and it will be posted with the next post ...

6 Köpfe 12 Blöcke - Bow Tie Block from Quiltmanufaktur

Kurz bevor ich euch am kommenden Montag den neuen Block für unseren Row by Row Quilt Along 2018 präsentiere, habe ich noch ganz schnell die Blöcke von Verena einfach bunt Quilts genäht -
die Bow Tie Blöcke


Dabei habe ich die zweite Variante von Verenas Tutorial gewählt und die Connector Ecken genäht. Aber nicht, weil ich keine Lust auf den Dreidimensionalen Block hatte, sondern weil ich es lieber 'glatt' auf meinem Quilt habe....


Das setzt dann natürlich immer voraus, dass man die Punkte an den Ecken sauber trifft. Das Gelingen hängt bestimmt immer auch davon ab, wie ordentlich man zuschneidet und ...

#100Days100Blocks2018: Trellis from Liz Makes Crafts

The first quilt top I got from the #100Days100Blocks2018 challenge is complete. Trellis is the layout I used for this one because I love the graphic, high-contrast look of the frames with the colorful blocks.

This quilt required some advanced planning, as I knew I wanted a rainbow effect that washes diagonally, and the colorways in Pacific allowed me to do that. I drew a color chart in advance so I knew how many of each type to make. Once I finally finished the blocks, I laid them out on the design wall.

Once the layout was complete, it was ...

#100Days100Blocks2018 Blocks 64 - 70 from Liz Makes Crafts

Finally, finally we're at this point. This is my last week of #100Days100Blocks2018, and it's been a long journey. I always knew I was going to make it here barring unforeseen circumstances, but I didn't realize it'd be so much dragging my feet. I blame myself really, I got the idea to do 2 quilts, doing 1 would have been less mentally exhausting. But now that I'm done with the blocks ... I look forward to assembling them!

After block #64, the rest of the blocks will only be completed with the black/white colorway ...

Minnesota Winter Wonderland QAL - September from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


I know, I know, it's another tree, an 'Evergreen Tree'. I hope you don't mind another tree but I can't have a forest unless there are a few trees. I hope to someday have a cabin in the woods next to a lake, doesn't that sound wonderful. A quiet place to go with no traffic noise. A place to listen to the birds sing... Belvedere would love a place to run and chase balls. This month's block is the final block for the center section. It's a cabin in the woods.  I hope that ...
